Patrols - Red & Yellow Flags down 28 April 2019
On Sunday 28 April the red & yellow flags came down at Bulli Beach for the completion of season 2018-2019.
Patrol Team 1 were on all day on this Sunday – as mentioned the last patrol day of the 2018-19 season. Calm conditions and beautiful weather made it a nice day to be on the beach.
Of behalf of our President Keith Caldwell & Director of Life Saving Markus Meier-Lindner we would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our patrol teams, plus all additional volunteers for your service, help and support to make this season a great success.
The ultimate measure for this is that we can now claim the '106th season with no lives lost whilst our club members have been on patrol'. 👏🤩🙏👍👌
Our lifesaving leaders in the club were pleased to see heaps of good things happening during the season...namely good shift attendance, wearing of the red & yellow uniform, members organising timely swaps was clearly one of the standout achievements which made sure we had the relevant award qualifications on the beach to service & look after the community.
All this comes about from communications, which we had in bucket loads, members engaged & we thank them for this.
We also had a end of season debrief on Sunday in the club rooms🍕🍕🍕🍕🍺🍷 with some great ideas/thoughts on how we can continually improve our lifesaving services.
The season in a few snap shots:
- 4,333 volunteer patrolling hours
- 92 patrolling members
- 7 patrol teams
- 15 rescues
- 37 first aid provisions
- 1,105 preventions
- 0 lives lost
Thanks again and enjoy the well deserved winter break...you guys & girls deserve it!😎
